School crossing is upgraded
The pedestrian crossing at Umina Beach Public School on Sydney Ave has been officially upgraded to a "children's crossing".
Principal Ms Lyn Davis said: "The Children's Crossing will operate between 8am to 9:30am and 2:30pm and 4pm on gazetted school days.
"When in use, orange flags displaying the words Children crossing will be used.
"Drivers must slow down and halt before the stop line when a pedestrian is on the crossing or waiting to cross and remain stopped until all pedestrians leave the crossing.
"This is different to the previous version of the crossing which only required drivers to slow down and stop when a pedestrian stepped onto the marked crossing," Ms Davis said.
"Drivers must give way to a pedestrian on the crossing.
"Some drivers may not stop for pedestrians, so wait until all vehicles have stopped before you start to cross," Ms Davis said.
